KinKi Kids get 32nd consecutive No.1 with song written by AKB48 producer

KinKi Kids have set a new world record for the most number of  No.1 singles in a row since their debut, reports Oricon.

 

The duo’s 32nd single “変わったかたちの石 (Kawatta Katachi no Ishi)” was released on January 11.  Since then, it has sold more than 120,000 copies in its first week and made it to No.1 on the weekly charts in Japan.

 

The lyrics for the single were written by Yasushi Akimoto, the man behind girl band AKB48.  Of course, this was not the first time Akimoto has worked with KinKi Kids.  The two had worked together in 2005 when Akimoto wrote the lyrics to the duo’s 22nd single “SNOW! SNOW! SNOW!”

 

Every single KinKi Kids has released since “硝子の少年 (Glass no Shonen)” in 1997 has been a No.1 seller.  The second best-sellers after KinKi Kids are KAT-TUN, who have had 17 straight No.1 singles to date.
